Editor’s Voice


Have we been too hasty in trying to kick the economy back into life too soon?


quickly? Are safety measures adequate enough to protect people as they return to work and begin to interact at a closer social distance? Can you really trust


the general public enough to listen to advice and best practice, when you can’t even trust them to follow a one-way system in Tesco, let alone wear a mask while on the lash?


These are all questions that, at the time of writing, we don’t have an answer to yet, but you don’t need to take a roundtrip to Barnard Castle to realise that


reopening is a huge gamble. There’s no cure for COVID-19 yet, only preventative measures and common-sense steps to take in order to minimise risk, but make no mistake: the risk to life has not gone away, and we need to be prepared for another infection peak soon.


This is why our cleaning industry is so vital, as providing a safe, reassuring


path for businesses and schools to take will allow us at least some vestige of normality. In this issue of Tomorrow’s Cleaning, we’ve got a bumper feature


dedicated to Educational and School Facilities, as many companies discuss how to protect children, staff and parents alike. In a special Case Study, Robert Scott let us know how they assisted a local special educational needs school: both in getting them a new site, and helping them reopen.

4 | EDITOR’S VOICE In our Technology feature, Christian from Ezitracker talks about how cleaning


service providers need to be more flexible and how technology can help them do this, and Nils from Softbank Robotics details how their cobots can help support cleaners. In our Window Cleaning and Working at Height feature, the Ladder Associations gets us up to speed on new industry guidance, while Principle


informs us as to how their window cleaners are adapting to the new normal. Thank you very much for reading, please stay safe and enjoy the issue!
